Sports Coaches Resources

One of the biggest challenges for young people participating in sport is when coaches do not know about or understand diabetes. The aim of this study is to work with young people with type 1 diabetes, parents and sports coaches to develop resources to educate coaches and support young people with type 1 diabetes to be physically active.  

The researchers will be conducting online interviews to find out about your experiences with your coaches and managing diabetes during sports.  

Interviews will be about one hour in length and will be online using Zoom. You will not need to attend Perth Children’s Hospital for any visits.

This study has Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) approval.
